Would Guns N’ Roses ever go “Motley Crue” and release a biopic along the lines of “The Dirt?” Slash weighs in

Slash recently caught Motley Crue’s “The Dirt” biopic, and he was impressed. In a new interview with Chile’s Futuro 88.9 FM, the guitarist explained why he loved the film– and what he thinks about Guns N’ Roses following suit.

“I thought the Motley movie was great, ’cause I just saw it a couple of days ago,” Slash said. “It really took me back to the early days in the ’80s and all the way through their career, because I just remember everything that happened along the way. And then it gave me some insights as to internal details that I wasn’t really aware of. But I thought that came out great.”

So, what about a possible Guns N’ Roses biopic? Even though Slash heads up his own film production company, he says releasing a biopic isn’t of interest to him.

“I wouldn’t wanna do a Guns (N’ Roses) movie like that,” he explained. “I couldn’t imagine trying to find somebody to play the different members of the band. It just doesn’t even seem possible.”

That said, Slash reveals that Guns N’ Roses has a large amount of film footage from Guns N’ Roses’ earlier days that could be made into some kind of cool film.

“I think we have a lot of concert footage from the ’90s in the can — like, 24-7 footage from 1991 to 1994, of just every day on the road with Guns N’ Roses,” Slash said. “And it’s been sitting in a vault for years. And I would love for that to be edited at some point and put out. So we’ll see if that ever happens.”
